The cost of insulin for treating type 1 diabetes in the United States nearly doubled over a five-year period, underscoring a national outcry over rising drug prices, according to a new analysis shared with Reuters.
AbstractTo investigate the characteristics of regenerated retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells after retinal laser photocoagulation in diabetic mice. C57BL/6J mice were used to induce diabetes using intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin. The proliferation of RPE cells after laser photocoagulation was determined using the 5-ethynyl-2 ′-deoxyuridine (EdU) assay in both diabetic and wild-type mice. The morphological changes of RPE cells were evaluated by using Voronoi diagram from immunostaining for ß-catenin. Characteristics of regenerated cells were evaluated by quantifying the mRNA and protein levels of...
TYPE 2 diabetes sufferers don ’t have to completely cut sweet treats out of their diets in order to lower blood sugar, but cutting down on sugar is advisable. If you have a sweet tooth and find it hard to cut down on certain foods, these five swaps can help you to lower your sugar and calorie intake without having to ditch you r favourite treats.
The global prevalence of diabetic foot ulceration (DFU) has recently been reported as 6.3%.1 The problem is particularly significant in North America, with a prevalence of 13%; in Europe, the rate is 5.5%. In a prospective study of 725 diabetic patients with a mean follow-up of 691.8 days, the mortality of individuals with DFU was more than two-fold higher than diabetic patients without ulceration, irrespective of age, diabetes type, and treatment of diabetes.2 Management of both the foot and the patient as a whole in the context of DFU depends on a coordinated, multidisciplin ary team approach: good glycemic control...
Vagal nerve stimulation is gaining recognition as an important therapeutic approach especially for non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), Depression, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimer, and certain types of cancer. In turn, decreased vagal tone its implicated in the prognosis of a wide range of diseases. Afferent vagal stimulation seems to have the key to reset certain pathophysiological states of the body leading to health improvement by reshaping neural networks.
Background: We study a patient with bitemporal epilepsy and type 1 diabetes mellitus with both continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and responsive neurostimulation (RNS) devices. CGM surveys tissue glucose with every 5-minute reads. RNS records long seizure events and hourly detection/stimulation counts (DSC). In this patient, we previously showed time-dependent variances in glucose dependent on side of temporal seizure onsets, specifically lower relative glucose and earlier morning onsets for right-sided seizures vs.
Background: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) accelerates cognitive aging and increases the risk for Alzheimer ’s disease (AD). Even non-demented older adults with T2DM show learning and memory impairments. Prior research has linked cortical hyperexcitability to memory dysfunction in AD. Our aim was to investigate if a similar association exists in T2DM.
According to the Society for Neuroscience, the Kavli Foundation and the Gatsby charitable foundation, the cost to the global economy of neurological and mental-health disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer ’s disease, including healthcare expenses, loss of productivity in the workplace and impact on families, reached $2.5 trillion in 2010, and could reach $6 trillion by 2030. By then, the economic burden of brain health will be higher than those of cancer, diabetes and respiratory conditions combine d.

Ketosis and ketoacidosis both involve increased levels of ketones in the body. However, they are not the same thing. Nutritional ketosis is the aim of the ketogenic diet, and it is generally safe, whereas ketoacidosis is a complication of type 1 diabetes that can be life-threatening. Learn more here.
